Fear only works when we are unconsciously consumed by our minds.
There can be present moment situations of real-life danger that could lead to momentary fear. However, the fear we feel constantly in our minds is a psychological fear as it is based on a projection into the future.
The future does not exist and we can not deal with what does not exist, so it creates the emotion and pain in the mind and the body.
Present moment fear as in real danger, we can deal with.
When we are truly awake, conscious, without the noise of the mind and it’s repeating thought patterns, then we are free from psychological fear and all the debilitating sabotage that it does.
